That third goal is what Spirit Day is all about. This October 20 and next October 20 and the October 20 after that, wear purple and let people know why. Youíre a big grown-up and youíre protected from violence in a way that kids arenít ó so for just one day why donít you take the flak thatís flying and knock it down? While youíre at it, send out a message to these targeted kids that yes, it gets better. Because it does get better. Really, it does.
|If you care about the irreverence of a message and the ethics of production, if you love to wear great looking shirts but don't like the weight of a guilty conscience, this is the place for you. Most clothing today is made in sweatshops where workers are abused and paid a pittance -- but there is an alternative. Every shirt we sell here is printed by the small Ohio business Skreened and made in worker-friendly conditions by American Apparel, which has a fully regulated, fully inspected factory. Our shirts will give you the real comfort you've been looking for.
Click on the image of the shirt design you like the most. You'll be taken to our online shop at Skreened with options to customize by clothing type, color and placement before you make your purchase.
